Virtus is derived from Latin and means excellence and virtue. We pride ourselves on our personal and professional integrity and place significant emphasis on building strong relationships with our investment and operating partners in any transaction. The following guidelines help us to focus our investment efforts:
Strong Relationships with Experienced Operators
We believe that strong leadership is key to growing any business. We seek to develop long-term partnerships with successful and motivated operating professionals. We also rely on a network of industry experts to help management teams further enhance business growth and efficiency.
Focus on Niche Healthcare / sector focus
The changing healthcare landscape has created numerous opportunities for healthcare services providers. We seek to partner with businesses that we believe can capitalize on today’s dynamic healthcare industry.
Flexible Investment Approach
Virtus Equity does not have a defined investment holding period or investment mandate. We work with business owners to determine the right level of investment for their business. We have the flexibility to invest across different types of private equity investment structures, including control acquisitions, management buyouts, corporate carve-outs, growth equity investments, strategic minority investments, distressed investments and healthcare real estate development investments.
Partnership with Business Owners
Whether you are a business owner seeking a full transition out of the business or merely looking for growth capital, our goal is to work the existing owner to develop an appropriate structure and bring in the right expertise to take a business to its next level of growth.
Focus on growth-oriented small-cap companies
We believe the small-cap market offers significant opportunities for growth and value creation. We target companies that have good growth prospects, defensible market positions, and attractive return on capital characteristics. We are able to spend the time and resources necessary to help management teams address how to achieve their optimal potential.
